Which ArchAngel are you most like?

Rafael. You're most like the ArchAngel of Healing. You want people to shape up, and you nag. But you mean well, and you're well loved despite it. Or because of it. You bring the donuts even as you tell people to eat more veggies.

Take this quiz!

Boot envy

I have been very remiss in blogging lately. Which is really bad as i have access to BB at both work and home. I blame WoW, it sucks every spare moment i have. I swear that one of these days soon people are going to see screen shots burned into my retina. It looks like i can post pictures again so i will try get some shots of my characters up. HELP I NEED A LIFE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The title of this post refers to the SA tradition of riding right on someone's bumper to get them to move out of the way. These usually means that someone is going to fast. This is not a lament of the poor driving in SA (and boy is it shocking), hell i have tail gated people before. Specially taxis...
But i do have an issue with guys doing it too me on my bike. It is mostly on DeWaal drive, but does happen all over too. In wet weather too. Maybe they don't realize that a fender bender for me generally means broken bones. I will stop ranting now.

Bast, all the right people are going home. Jamie's paranoia sent him home though. If he had just shut up he would have been fine. Now if they will only get rid of Judd. Although he is a good one to have next to you at final tribal council.

Survivor (caution info below)

Not keeping up with Survivor posts =/

So here is a feeble attempt.

Bye Bye Bobby John.
Go Gary, go Gary, its your birthday


Fire in the hole.........or hold

for some reason that is well beyond my understanding i have that phrase stuck in my head. I thought i should probably find out where it comes from and which ones is correct. Well according to the interweb they seem to both have well grounded backing.

"Fire in the hole" could be a term used often in mining. The charges are placed in holes drilled along the tunnel walls. The fuse wire tended to extend well out of this hole so that the guy lighting it could be far away when he lit it. Hence the term "Fire in the hole" means imminent explosion. The only problem i have with this one is that if someone calls that and you are not in a well cast shield spell you're screwed.

"Fire in the hold" was of course from old warships. If there were to be a fire on the canon decks badness would ensue. Gunpowder + fire - canon = BOOOOOOOM and not in a good way.

All of the above does not get it out of my head though. It is like having a tune stuck in your head only its shorter.

The broken car mentioned in a previous post has been mended and i am off the hook *sigh of relief* I just happened to be the one driving it when the well FUBAR clutch plate decided to call it quits. The guy at the service shop said it was in more than a few pieces. Not something that just happens. Saves me 3K *phew*

an ever tricksy day. This one decided to throw a fubar clutch at me, fortunately not on my bike. Unfortunately in my bosses car. On hospital bend no less, traversing that hill without a clutch is no fun i assure you. I must accelerate my plans to move closer to work.
Had a fun weekend, went to watch the SA 15 beat (only just) the world 15 at Firemans arms. The bill was a shocker when it arrived. 9 pints, how the hell did we get through that many *sigh* it is a slippery slope. Then off to Tiger Tiger, which was much fun. Although i really believe that their dress code is anal and stupid. Playboy bunnies even made an appearance =)
It has been awhile since i have a had 2am Steers burgers.

Sunday of course was spent bemoaning age and resolutions of never again. Also spent watching Prison Break. All i say is a plan is simply a list of things that never happen.

Well off to face the music of burnt out/snap clutch make car go thingies.

My very late survivor update is: Crappy vote to have to make, really like that team. Mute point now anyway. PS thanks SABC 3 for showing us a clip of the canopy zip line, you idiots.
